+1 on the Aeron chair. I bought one for my assistant and it really helped her, so I bought one too. It has made a big difference (looks cool with the polished alloy base, too). We have gone to convertible stand-up desks, too. That helps, as well.

This used to be the view from the 'office chair', which as one can imagine, made it somewhat difficult to get up and stretch ones legs:

Yeah, I've removed that... care to add anything, though? Or are you just going to call people out?

Sorry, did not mean to call anybody out.
Just getting tired of the long lived myth about lactic acid/lactate and soreness.
Elevated lactate levels at rest is pathologic.

A comfortable office chair is nice, but shorter than all of it, the simple stretching will help you recover your legs.

Definitely Herman Miller Embody Chair is the best alternative . The curves and lines of the chair ensure that your body is kept in the optimum position all the time. You’ll feel almost weightless whilst you use this chair, meaning that your stress levels can also stay as low as possible. Your lower heart rate will allow your brain to remain focused as you work.

I have the aeron, amd find it great, but mostly working horizontal on the couch to keep my back under control. The Embody looks real nice.

I found my aeron at a used office furniture store. Craigslist had lots of posts for them, many used furniture stores.

This is the standard issue chair in my office and it's quite amazing. Memory foam seat and a nice mesh back, can be found for $200 if you're savvy.
